An event celebrating the new expansion to the Bentley garage has taken place at its showroom at Watermead Business Park in Syston.

Marking the new extension, which contains a new bodyshop and valeting area, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place with Bentley Leicester Dealer Principal, Sean Cook and Director of Raynsway Properties Giannina Rayns doing the honours.

The expansion is the first stage of a new development for the car dealership, with a seven-figure sum being invested by the prestige car retailer Sytner that will see the addition of a new Lamborghini showroom in early 2014.

It will be the UK’s seventh Lamborghini dealership and the investment to the Bentley site has also meant the creation of new jobs within the new bodyshop facility, as well as the new showroom.

Giannina Rayns, Director at Raynsway Properties, comments, “We are delighted to mark this new chapter for the Bentley Showroom with a ribbon cutting ceremony and Raynsway are honoured to be a part of the site’s exciting plans for the future.

Such an investment here at Watermead Business Park and in the north of Leicester proves once again that the county is the place to bring and develop a well known and prestigious franchise and we hope this will encourage other businesses to do the same.”

Sean Cook Bentley Leicester Dealer Principal, comments, “This new expansion will allow us to cater for all aspects of our customers’ needs and the addition of the Lamborghini brand will complement our Bentley business, whilst raising our profile in Leicestershire and the surrounding counties.”

Originally established by Charlie Rayns in the 1970s, Raynsway Properties owns and manages a portfolio of office and industrial premises totally some 500,000 sq. ft. in the Thurmaston / Syston area. To find out more, visit
